The Shaping of Institutional Research and Planning.
Dressel, Paul L.
Research in Higher Education, v14 n3 p229-58 1981
The origins of institutional research and its association with a planning function are reviewed. The role of values, politics, and social pressures in regard to the planning function are examined. Planning is likely to be more directed to attaining administrative and faculty aspirations than to meeting educational and social needs. (Author/MLW)
